Dr. Mariela Acuna Mora

I work as a lecturer at the University of Borås and as an assistant researcher at the University of Gothenburg. During my doctoral education, I focused on patient empowerment during the transition to adulthood of young persons with chronic illnesses. Currently, I am the project coordinator for the Digi-Stepstones project that aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a digitally delivered transition program.

My research skills include developing and evaluating complex healthcare interventions, instrument development and evaluation, quantitative data management and knowledge of several statistical programs.

I am a reviewer for different journals and a section editor at the European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing as part of the Social Media Team.

Apart from research, in the past months I have started to learn about digital illustrations and I hope to combine these skills along with my research and teaching in the future.
